    I was looking at them online the other day and they really offer alot for the money. $7000 will get you a 21/48 with 16cc pumps that goes 13mph and has a ROPS and suspension seat. They also only weigh like 900 some odd pounds. Friend of mine is about to carry them up at his dealership in Saginaw so I'm gonna have to mosey up there and see what they look like in person.

    What I want to know is, what is the seat height? I bet they have close to the lowest COG in the industry the way the pumps are set up.

    I tried one out and it was real responsive, however it seemed to really be a rough ride. The grass isn't growing so I can't say anything about the cut. Wright makes nice stuff so I think it would be a good solid mower, and the price is nice.I'm guessing the rough ride is somewhat caused by the short wheelbase and the fact that they have a fairly low weight. I found out later that the rear wheels can be moved forward and back for collection systems and maybe the dealer did not have it set correctly.

    I tried one at the gie show in OCT and it was nice...I have a stander now and I love it. I may get a wright Z next. I currently use toro for my z mower and it is nice too...but kinda pricey

    The straddle seat of the Sentar and Sentar sport are very comfy.

    Yeah the straddle seat on those is nice. I'm talking about the midmount Z though, not the Sentars/Sports. The Sentars actually cost more than the Z, surprisingly enough. The Sports aren't bad as they cost just a hair more than the old Scag Zcats, and are much more agile. Not as rugged, but more agile.

    They had a 48" at my Dealer's demo days this past Fall. Would have liked to see a 60" unit.

    I like a LOT of things about them.

    I would like to see more HP though.

    Kinda worried about the cut quality. Never really hear GREAT things about their cut.

    Sounds kind of pricey for what you are getting in cut and HP.
